Dun & Bradstreet Ranks vcita Among the Top 20 Best Places to Work in Tech
Earlier this week, Dun’s 100, the business ranking arm of global business data company Dun & Bradstreet, included vcita, the small business management platform, in 12th place in its high-tech Top 20 Best Startups to Work For.
Dun’s 100 is an annual ranking for the best companies to work for in numerous verticals, and its high-tech ranking encompasses evaluations of approximately 10,000 companies.
Appearing high on the Dun’s 100 list is significant for a company’s ability to attract the best talent, with tech professionals paying attention to the rankings when choosing their next position.
“Making it to the Top 20 on the Dun’s 100 is extremely exciting, especially after 18 months of disruption in the workplace,” said Itzik Levy, CEO of vcita. “I feel this achievement really belongs to our managers and employees, who kept our company culture positive and engaged throughout difficult circumstances. It’s a tribute to our global workforce who have really risen to the occasion.”
The staff at Dun’s 100 performs rigorous research, including questionnaires covering six categories both to executives and employees. Companies are scored for diversity and inclusion; support for working parents and a good work-life balance; tech and innovation in the company and employee influence on company policy; career development options; and compensation.
This year, the ranking also considered coronavirus response and support for employees during the pandemic.
Inclusion in Dun’s 100 comes towards the end of a big year of growth and achievement for vcita, in which the company received a number of accolades. 2021 began with recognition from tech recruitment platform Built In, which awarded vcita as one of its Best Places to Work. Adi Engel, vcita’s chief marketing officer, was named one of 2021’s Elite Women in Business in Aspioneer. Mirror Review named the vcita platform a top-ten Most Efficient CRM Solution Provider 2021, and The Software Report tapped vcita as one of the Top 100 Software Companies of 2021.
Throughout 2020 and 2021, vcita employees have been working hard to launch new ways to support small business owners throughout uncertain and rapidly changing conditions. These include partnering with Mastercard to launch the Business Unusual portal; collaborations with municipal business bureaus and small business platforms around the world to strengthen local business ecosystems; entering the SME Finance Forum; and joint projects with leaders like Square, Next Insurance, and Lendio.
In tandem, vcita has released a steady flow of new product features focused on helping businesses to get paid for their services with minimum friction. With “Packages,” businesses can offer prepaid bundles at attractive prices. With “Pay by Mobile,” users can send their customers contactless payment links via SMS in an interface that resembles familiar mobile wallet experiences. Enhancements around automated monthly invoicing and per-customer payment data drill-downs have also recently rolled out.
Throughout this period, vcita has been adding to its workforce, ensuring that it could develop and launch this wave of new initiatives and continue offering the same level of support to small business users. The Dun’s 100 ranking serves as validation that vcita’s expansion hasn’t come at the expense of its supportive culture.
“I don’t know how we’d succeed in supporting small businesses if we don’t support our own employees first. They make us who we are,” said Levy. “It’s wonderful to feel that this approach is being recognized.”
